Customize Tableau Logos and Company Name

At Indiana University we deployed Tableau Server 8 in addition to our already used Microsoft BI toolset.

As with any company branding is an important aspect of any delivery. The Tableau Server options are limited however here are some of the options it does allow.

Chang Company Name
In this example the default name when you rollover the Tableau default image is Tableau. I have changed the company name to Cory Retherford for this example.

  • Open a command prompt as an administrator and navigate (cd = change directory) to the bin folder on your Tableau Server.
    • cd "Drive Letter:\Install Location\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.0\bin"
  • Change the Company name by using tabadmin.
    • tabadmin customize name "Company Name"
  • Restart the server for each change to take effect.
    • tabadmin restart

Change the Company Logo
As you could see from the above image you can also customize the logo as it appears on most web pages.

  • To change the logo Open a command prompt as an administrator and navigate (cd = change directory) to the bin folder on your Tableau Server.
    • cd "Drive Letter:\Install Location\Tableau\Tableau Server\8.0\bin"
  • Change the logo by typing the following.
    • tabadmin customize logo "D:\Tableau\Images\companylogo.png"
  • In the above line, replace "D:\Tableau\Images\companylogo.png" with the path to the image using a 130 pixel wide image using a .png, jpg, or .gif file.
  • Restart the server for the change to take effect by typing.
    • tabadmin restart

You can also make all changes and then at the end run the restart command.

Further Customization
The following are not supported by Tableau
In this example D is the root of where Tableau Server is installed.

D:\Tableau\Tableau_Server\8.0\wgserver\public\
D:\Tableau\Tableau_Server\8.0\wgserver\public\images\
...
and a few others.
